There was one winner of last night's Lotto jackpot, which was worth almost €13.3m.

It was one of the biggest jackpots in the history of the National Lottery.

Last night's winning ticket was bought in the family-run News 'N' Choose newsagent and book store in Loughrea, Co Galway.

The ticket, a €12 quick pick, was sold yesterday.

One of the newsagents' owners, Cherry O'Connor, says he has no idea who won, and the ticket could have been bought by a single person or a syndicate.
